I was reluctant to make this post today; something on my mind was saying to leave it for another day. Then I started wondering about waking up late on Sunday and start the day on a slow manner hearing this fantastic music. This was enough to make me confident to show this album to Loronixers as the last post of today. This is not popular music, it is classical music, but it is so beautiful that you should make a try. Perhaps O Canto da Amazonia never had a CD reissue and I’m really glad to find this album, listed as one of the 100 Brazilian essential records at Luiz Americo website.

This is Maria Lucia Godoy – O Canto da Amazonia (1969), for Museu da Imagem e do Som, recorded to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Manaus city, Amazonas state, featuring the classical singer Maria Lucia Godoy, the guitar of Neco and arrangements of Maestro Guerra Peixe. O Canto da Amazonia has also another very important Brazilian artist, the composer Waldemar Henrique, a very important artist to Amazon region by his musical translations of the Amazon legends and myths, such as: Matintaperera, Uirapuru, Curipira, among others. Waldermar Henrique is in charge of most of Side B compositions of O Canto da Amazonia.

Maria Lucia Godoy is a great surprise. I think she brings all the birds from Amazon on her singing, being also in charge of a great accomplishment, the repertoire selection. Neco proves to be a real nice musician with his guitar being heard in all tracks. A small ensemble of clarinet, flute and cello was also in this great session. I urge Loronixers to feedback this release, which is dedicated to the great Amazon region and a very good Loronix friend from Canada. Tracks include:

I do not have a clue of what zecalouro is planning as the last post and I hope he makes the right choice, at least picking up a nice cover such like this one and the last one with the girl in front of a yellow background. Today seems to be the “beautiful cover” day at Loronix.

When I made available the first record of this wonderful Brazilian guitar player I would never realize that we would make three additional releases, all provided by Caetano Rodrigues, which I say thanks for sharing this rare Neco LPs.

This is Neco – Samba e Violao Vol. 2 (1968), for London. Little is known about this album, the back cover has just the same black and white picture of front cover with track list. What is known is Caetano’s and zecalouro’s opinion, which are both very positive with zeca saying that among the four Neco LPs he have heard, this is the best one. This is a very hard to find and an excellent album; we should thanks Caetano for making it available to our community on a really nice quality. Tracks include:

01 – Andança (Danilo Caymmi / Edmundo Souto / Paulinho Tapajós)
02 – É Preciso Cantar (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
03 – Sabiá (Tom Jobim / Chico Buarque)
04 – Você Passa e Eu Acho Graça (Carlos Imperial / Ataulfo Alves)
05 – Despedida de Mangueira (Benedito Lacerda / Aldo Cabral)
06 – Canção do Amanhecer (Edu Lobo / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – O Cantador (Dori Caymmi / Nelson Motta)
08 – Sonho de Lugar (Marcos Valle / Paulo Sergio Valle)
09 – Helena Helena Helena (Alberto Land)
10 – Implorar (Kid Pepe / Germano Augusto / Gaspar)
11 – Retrato Em Branco e Preto (Tom Jobim / Chico Buarque)
12 – Chorinho A (Neco)

It was very hard to decide the end post of the day. I was on a conflict between two other choices, but when it comes to my attention that Caetano sent to us an additional Neco LP, the decision was taken on less then a second. Jean Yves (Jean do Trombone) will be very pleased to see Neco when he wakes up in the morning. Jean is a great friend of our community and had the chance to play and have a friendship with Neco. Jean said that besides being a unique guitarist, Neco is also a great human being. Thanks Caetano for the chance to present to Loronixers these really hard to find Neco solo releases.

This is Neco – Coquetel Bossa Nova (1963), for CBS. The first Neco solo album, although some reviewers takes Coquetel Bossa Nova as the second Neco album, taking the first as Samba Nova Concepcao (1963), widely associated as an Eumir Deodato LP. I need more clarification on this subject, share your thoughts at comments section, Tracks include:

01 – Jogado Fora (João Mello)
02 – Você (Rildo Hora / Clóvis Mello)
03 – Está Nascendo Um Samba (Tito Madi / Romeo Nunes)
04 – Se Chegou Assim (Othon Russo / Newton Ramalho)
05 – Ah Se Eu Pudesse (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
06 – Corcovado (Tom Jobim)
07 – Nós e o Mar (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
08 – Com o Amor Não Se Brinca (Romeo Nunes / Carlito)
09 – Tem Dó (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 – A Mesma Rosa Amarela (Capiba / Carlos Penna Filho)
11 – Triteza e Solidão (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
12 – Sorriu Pra Mim (Garoto / Luis Cláudio)

Não tinha esse disco. Porém, graças aos amigos Eliane e Martoni, ele agora está disponível na Rádio Forma e Elenco.

It has been three months since the first Neco LP made available to Loronixers and this one provided by Caetano Rodrigues. I kept an eye during these 90 days on old vinyl stores, auction sites and virtual communities to gather another out of print Neco LP. I’m very happy with this sharing and probably many friends. Thanks also to Jean Yves (Jean do Trombone) for his very gentle comments at the shout box asking for Neco LPs with passion, living far from Brazil in France, this release should be special to Jean Yves. I understand this kind of feeling and Caetano either and that is the magic of our community, the celebration of the music from Brazil.

This is Neco – Samba e Violao (1967), for London. If you got amazed with the earlier released Velvet Bossa Nova, get yourself ready to be paralyzed by this one, a nice violao instrumental album that will make the day of several friends, specially the musicians from Brazil. This country has a unique violao tradition, an instrument loved by every musician. Tracks include:

01 – Upa Neguinho (Edu Lobo / Gianfrancesco Guarnieri)
02 – Agora É Cinza (Alcebíades Barcelos “Bide” / Armando “Marçal”)
03 – Opinião (Zé Keti)
04 – Disparada (Geraldo Vandré / Theo de Barros)
05 – Olê Olá (Chico Buarque)
06 – Não Tenho Lágrimas (Milton de Oliveira / Max Bulhões)
07 – Apelo (Baden Powell / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Não Me Diga Adeus (Paquito / Luis Soberano / João Correia da Silva)
09 – Doralice (Antônio Almeida / Dorival Caymmi)
10 – O Morro Não Tem Vez (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 – Samba do Avião (Tom Jobim)
12 – Só Tinha de Ser Com Você (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
